Admissions to our school are all dealt with by Lincolnshire County Council. This includes applications for places for our new Reception intake each September and for any mid-term admissions or transfers from other schools. Our published admission number (PAN) is 30 and so each class can have up to 30 pupils. Pupils in addition to this are admitted at the direction of the local authority only.

Further information and details of how to apply for a school place can be found at 

and the LCC Admissions Policies at  https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-admission-policies

Over-subscription Criteria:

For entry into reception in September places are allocated by the local authority. In the event of the school being oversubscribed, the following criteria will be applied:

  • The child has an Educational Health Care Plan
  • The child is in the care of the local authority / has previously been Looked After
  • There is a brother or sister at the school who will be attending when the child is due to start
  • The school is the nearest on to the home address (measured electronically by the local authority, taking the distance from the home address to all schools by the shortest driving distance along public highways using the post office address point of the home to the post office address point of the school).
  • The distance from the home to the school, priority will be given to the child living closest to the school (measured as for point 3, but the distance to other schools is not measured. The nearer child will be allocated the place).


If you are considering an application for a place in our school, please feel free to contact the main school office who will be able to arrange for an appointment for you to have a look around, or answer any questions you may have about the school.
